Sunshine expected for the start of classes

This weekend’s stretch of humid, stormy weather will give way to a more settled pattern just in time for the start of the fall semester on Wednesday.

However, the Institute will have to endure one more day of occasional showers before the start of classes as a cold front passes through our area today. Instability associated with the frontal boundary will create the chance of showers and thunderstorms throughout the day and evening.

Starting tomorrow, though, the weather will be noticeably cooler and drier as the influence of a high pressure system is felt. Temperatures can be expected to stay below 80°F for the latter part of the week, with sunshine abated only by the occasional shower or thunderstorm associated with a possible back-door cold front.
